Upon entrance and completion of teacher preparation, 150 prospective teachers completed attitude, anxiety, and personality measures. As candidates progressed through teacher preparation, anxiety decreased and attitude remained high and positive. Introverted candidates expressed more anxiety and experienced a smaller decrease in anxiety than extroverts, whereas internally controlled candidates reported less anxiety than candidates with average or high externality.
